1. SAVING PRIVATE RYAN
Another one of my favourite Movies though I have to say I watched a long time after its release. Do you guys remember the landing at the Omaha Beach? It was very graphic and it shocked the audiences worldwide. Happened at the Omaha beach on D-Day, the landing even induced flashbacks in Normandy veterans. The reality shown is almost sickening and frightening. It gives you a really clear picture of what it was like at that time and I have to see it was scary.
I probably watched this movie a million times to say the least and I can’t get the Battle of Thermopylae out of head. It happened in 480 BC. The alliance of Greek city-states battled the Persian Empire that were invading. The battle happened at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece. The Greeks were able to keep the Persians at bay for a whole of three days even though they were heavily outnumbered; the most famous stands in history. The army was led by King Leonidas of Sparta and he held of the massive army led by Xerxes I of Persia.
3. A BRIDGE TOO FAR
The Parachute Drop was absolutely brilliant. The Allied troops are dispatched behind the enemy lines. The parachute scene is followed by the tank and infantry battle. The battle is over the bridge or Arnhem; epic. The cast too is absolutely fantastic. The movie includes Anthony Hopkins (my favourite , Laurence Oliveier, Sean Connery, Ryan O’Neal and Robert Redford. This is a movie worth watching at least once.
4. BRAVE HEART
You have to see the battle of Stirling even if you haven’t seen the movie. Mel Gibson is the Scottish rebel and he tries to overthrow the British. It has scarcely to do with history but it is fun no doubt. Mel Gibson wins the Battle of Stirling and you guys just have to listen to his character on the battlefield. It’s simply awesome and I must say if there was an Oscar for that kind of thing, he would have won it.
The battle of germania. The Romans fight against the hairy and scary barbarians. epic scene!
